CHOSEN AFTER REJECTION.
Interesting Adventures of Some Fa
There used to be an old supersti
tion that a flash of' lightning would
turn milk sour. This is the effect
produced upon a young author by the
rejection of a manuscript by a pub
lisher. As the author becomes older,
more successful, and more experienc
ed, such rejections do not discourage
him, and if he sighs at all on these
occasions the sigh is one of commis
eration for the publisher who cannot
appreciate a really good thing when
he sees it.
The owner of a rejected mauseript

more celebrated works of literature

authors by unappreciative publishers.

tates have yielded to their publish
ers and authors larger returns than

whom it was submitted for the second
